A concession card to get cheaper medicines and some discounts if you get a payment from us.
You may get a Health Care Card if you get specific payments or supplements from us. You’ll get it if you’re on the maximum rate of Family Tax Benefit Part A.
You don’t need to apply for a Health Care Card. If you're eligible, we’ll post your card to you.
There is a range of concession and health care cards to help you access cheaper health care services and medicines.
